Carluke Development Trust is launching its new look annual Road Race – the Carluke 10k – taking place on Sunday 22nd May at John Cumming Stadium in the heart of Carluke in partnership with Beatson Cancer Charity.

Participants will have the option of a 10k Road Race with 2 categories: 15-17yrs or Over 18's. The family-friendly Fun Run is suitable for all ages and abilities.

With the help of both South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture and Roads Departments a new route has been devised and expanded around Yieldshields to enable runners to challenge themselves to an achievable 10k distance and enjoy the sights of Carluke. This New route has been created as a result of feedback from club runners and fitness enthusiasts.

TP - Turning Point

W - Water Station

Carluke Development Trust is pleased to confirm they will continue their official charity partnership with Beatson Cancer Charity. Both organisations are hoping for a fantastic turn out of runners, joggers, walkers and spectators on the day.

All funds raised from participant sponsorship will go directly towards benefiting the people of Lanarkshire and the recently opened Lanarkshire Beatson, the state of the art £22 million Radiotherapy Treatment Centre, based at Monklands General Hospital, Airdrie.

Beatson Cancer Charity currently funds a whole range of patient and family support services at Lanarkshire Beatson like massage and Reiki which helps patients cope with pain, insomnia and anxiety. It has also provided a contemporary, non-clinical environment with relaxing indoor and outdoor spaces and quieter areas which allow patients to share worries or discuss treatment plans with staff.

Kathleen Feeney, CDT Development Manager, said: “We are delighted to launch our NEW Carluke 10k. I am excited to continue our collaboration with this amazing Charity that will directly benefit Lanarkshire patients and families. The new ‘Carluke 10k’ is an opportunity for runners & walkers of all abilities to come together to show their support for a friend or loved one, or just participate to be part of the amazing atmosphere this event creates in the town. Additionally the new extended route is in response to the feedback from our more athletic runners so we hope to see an increase in registration numbers."

William Oviatt, Community and Corporate Fundraiser at Beatson Cancer Charity, said: “We are honoured to once again be chosen as the nominated charity for this year’s Carluke 10k and Fun Run event. It is wonderful to work with Carluke Development Trust and to help raise vital funds for Lanarkshire Beatson patients and their families. Each donation big or small is greatly appreciated and will help give a massive boost for the radiotherapy treatment centre in Lanarkshire.”


As always, Carluke Development Trust, the race organisers, in conjunction with the Beatson Cancer Charity would like to thank our main sponsors, NHS Lanarkshire, Border Biscuits, Hazelhead Homecare, South Lanarkshire Council, South Lanarkshire Leisure, Loaningdale Trust. We would also like to give a big thank you to Scotmid, The Co-operative, Tesco, Gerry’s minibuses,Tunnocks, Hillhead Farm, Anubis Security and the ladies who provided an amazing refreshment facility. Without this generosity the event would not be the same.

In addition we would also like to thank Clydesdale Sports Council, South Lanarkshire Roads Department, Police Scotland, St Andrews Ambulance Service, the Gala Committee – the Gala Queen and her Champion for starting the races, 3rd Carluke [Kirkton] Scouts, the senior pupils from Carluke High School and the help and encouragement from Clyde Runners and of course the Trust members and the host of volunteer stewards without whom the event would not be able to take place.

Pictures of our very successful Jam & Ham Festival are now on our website. You will find an album of all the events on our Jam & Ham Festival page.




Many thanks to Marco Biagi MSP and Aileen Campbell MSP for visiting the Mill today. We appreciate your interest in our community projects.

2015mill visit1

Over the past couple of months work has been carried out on the tower section of the High Mill to make sure there will be no further collapse or deterioration of the structure. Loose stones have been removed and the facades repointed and strengthened by a steel brace - which might not be pretty but hopefully will do the job.

This work has been paid for through an 'Ancient Monuments Grant' from Historic Scotland and gives the Trust time to raise the money required to further advance the project.

Have you noticed the amazing colour at the railway station? The photographs are a little reminder.

The new planting with additional filled containers has been co-ordinated by Andy McLatchie, a volunteer Trust Director, supplied and maintained by Rosebank Garden Centre and paid for through the 'adopt a station' programme by Scotrail.
